Youzhny Cooks Up A Storm With Son

St. Petersburg, Russia


Mikhail Youzhny and his three-year-old son Maxim enjoyed a cookery lesson together on Wednesday at the Grand Hotel Europe in St. Petersburg. Under the guidance of hotel chef Glen Cooper and his assistants, the father-son duo made ravioli and their Russian equivalent pelmeni.

While Maxim proved a dab hand cooking the pelmeni, Youzhny Sr., laboured over the seafood ravioli. “I have a feeling that it is easier to actually play tennis than to mould pelmeni!” said Youzhny. 

“All I did before was just put them in boiling water and wait till they were ready to eat. I am afraid I wouldn’t have the patience to make them all the time. Honestly, I only go to the kitchen to eat.”

The Russian was competing at the St. Petersburg Open this week and bowed out in the second round to Guillermo Garcia-Lopez.
